An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Every single file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web statistics your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very easy when you get a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with only several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button which you will see there. The function can be activated separately for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation may be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
